    “The country desperately needs another thousand more Andrew Breitbarts”

    “The country desperately needs another thousand more Andrew Breitbarts”

    Rush Limbaugh’s broadcast a year ago on the day of Andrew Breibart’s death, March 1, 2012.

    One of the best memorials I’ve heard.

    (h/t Stix Blog)

    For background on the lies told about Breitbart’s Shirley Sherrod tape, and how it supposedly was misleading, see my post Repeat after me: “The Shirley Sherrod tape was not misleading” and the earlier Dissecting Shirley Sherrod’s Complaint Against Andrew Breitbart.

    The lie about the Sherrod tape being misleading now is embedded casually in almost every mainstream media and left-wing discussion of Breitbart.  The agenda-driven media is the single biggest problem we have.

    “The agenda-driven media is the single biggest problem we have.”

    And yet, if you ask individually, they will tell you that is not the case. What they do is much simpler than that. They copy.

    It doesn’t take more than a line or two to answer the core questions for any news story, that is “Who, what, where when, how and why.” When the “news” is a follow-on, they copy old context from the old story. And if they chose an old story with a lie in it, well, it’s somebody else’s problem, and probably only somebody’s opinion.

    The best thing that could happen to the quality of our national dialog would be for New York Times v. Sullivan to be modified.
